“Sweetens Cove is one of the most audacious designs we’ve seen.  [King-Collins] built one of the most diverse & entertaining set of green complexes found anywhere.  This kind of fun, inventive, quick golf is more commonplace in the UK, which is why the game is so much healthier there than in America.  If you leave [Sweetens Cove] smiling, don’t panic: golf is supposed to be fun.”

“I have never had more people tell me to play a course than Sweetens Cove in South Pittsburgh, Tennessee.”
“Once you begin your round, you find course conditions that would rival many of the top courses in the country. The massive undulating greens are smooth as glass and very firm. The fairways are fast and cut tight, similar to what you’d find in the UK and the bunkers are all in excellent shape. After a few holes you realize the caliber of championship golf and think, “I’ve got to tell everyone about this…” At that point you’ve accidentally joined the Sweetens Cove cult.

Sweetens Cove…harkens back to one of the most influential golf courses ever built in the United States [Augusta National]….Collins and his partner, [Tad] King, have embraced the original MacKenzie-Jones tenets with gusto. Writing about Augusta then, MacKenzie could have been describing Sweetens today.
